Don’t Add, Rethink

in the generous life

I don’t know about y’all, but there are days when my plate is so full, I don’t feel I have time to be generous.  I’ve come to realize that often you don’t have to add activities to your day to show that you care.  You only need to rethink, with a bit of care and creativity, what you are already doing.

For example, when you are grocery shopping pick up your husband’s favorite jam (or whatever).  When you hug goodbye, remember to smile into his face and say “I love you.”  When you are doing the laundry, pray for your husband’s day.

Often it is not the large gestures that show the magnitude of your love, but rather the small everyday little things that add up.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do. Mother Teresa

Be generous!  Lori <><
